  • Painful win for Prairie Ridge against Grant Jan 4, 2014 12:00 AM
    Prairie Ridge’s boys basketball team kept hitting shots, and then a Wolves player hit the court. Hard. Starting guard Matt Perhats rolled his right ankle during the second quarter of Prairie Ridge’s 64-42 nonconference win over visiting Grant in Crystal Lake on Saturday night. It’s been a tough run for Grant lately. The Bulldogs (7-6) lost to Richmond-Burton in the championship game of Marengo’s E.C. Nichols Tournament three days after Christmas and have started off the New Year with back-to-back losses on the road, giving them their first three-game losing streak of the season.

  • South Elgin tops Prairie Ridge in OT Dec 26, 2013 12:00 AM
    South Elgin senior guard Matt McClure threw water on a hot shooter, then scored the final 5 points in overtime to seal a 69-65 victory over Prairie Ridge at the Hinkle Holiday Classic at Jacobs Thursday morning. Prairie Ridge senior Michael Bradshaw helped the Wolves erase a 9-point, fourth-quarter deficit by connecting on four 3-pointers in 5 attempts. The Wolves had a chance to to take a late lead at the free-throw line in regulation.

  • Larkin hangs on to beat Prairie Ridge Dec 23, 2013 12:00 AM

But Larkin never let the Wolves gain the lead, holding on for a 62-55 win.

  • Lake Zurich falls short against Drain, Prairie Ridge Dec 23, 2013 12:00 AM
    By the time Lake Zurich’s girls basketball team starts putting together consistent hot streaks, Kaylee Grant likely will be basking in consistent heat. In one month, the junior will be moving back to Keller, Texas, outside of Dallas, where she attended high school as a freshman, before transferring to Lake Zurich. “We enjoy the weather and southern hospitality down there,” Grant said. “The things I’m going to miss the most are the Lake Zurich basketball and softball teams. You get attached to your teammates and coaches. That’s going to be hard to leave.” An all-area softball catcher last spring, Grant also played varsity basketball as a sophomore for the Bears. She came off the bench to score 4 points and grab 4 rebounds Monday morning, as Lake Zurich opened the Mundelein Mustang Holiday Classic with a 51-38 loss to Prairie Ridge.

  • Jacobs’ Chris Orange drives and looks for a teammate between Prairie Ridge’s Michael Bradshaw and Kody Peterson Tuesday in Crystal Lake.

    Orange to the rescue for Jacobs Dec 17, 2013 12:00 AM
    When it came time for someone on the Jacobs boys basketball team to make a play, junior point guard Chris Orange knew it was on him to rise to the occasion. Orange thought the charge he took in overtime in the Golden Eagles’ come-from-behind 56-54 Fox Valley Conference Valley overtime win over Prairie Ridge Tuesday night in Crystal Lake was much more important than his game-tying 3-point play with 52.2 seconds remaining in regulation.

This year the team features some 30 athletes from Bartlett, South Elgin, Streamwood and Elgin. Larkin has no gymnasts on the team. The majority of this year’s team is comprised of South Elgin and Bartlett gymnasts.

Huntley held the Wolves to just 2 free throws the rest of the game en route to a 49-35 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division victory.

  • George, Kirby lead Carmel victory Nov 27, 2013 12:00 AM
    Carmel seniors Jack George and Billy Kirby made sure history didn’t repeat itself in a rematch with Prairie Ridge in the seventh annual Crystal Lake Central Coaches vs. Cancer Thanksgiving Tournament. A year ago, the Wolves rallied from a double-digit deficit in the third quarter for a victory as Michael Bradshaw erupted for 38 points. On Wednesday afternoon, the Corsairs found themselves in a similar position at the CL Central Fieldhouse. This time Kirby contained Bradshaw and no one could stop the 6-foot-10 George as he had 28 points and 9 rebounds in Carmel’s 58-49 victory.

    Working on game situations in practice turned out to be a huge difference for Mundelein’s girls basketball team in its second game of the season.

  • Prairie Ridge has Marmion’s number again Nov 9, 2013 12:00 AM
    Failing to produce a first down while falling behind 14-0 at halftime, Marmion’s football team regrouped in a big way in the second half. Senior quarterback Brock Krueger’s 4-yard touchdown run with 1:57 remaining capped a 5-play, 64-yard drive that gave the Cadets (8-3) a 20-14 lead over Prairie Ridge in Saturday’s Class 6A second-round playoff clash. The Cadets’ first lead of the game was short-lived, however, as the Wolves (7-4) marched 60 yards in 4 plays to tie the game on quarterback Brett Covalt’s 28-yard TD pass to Danny Meikel with 59.2 seconds left. Junior Chris Eschweiler delivered the all-important PAT kick and the Wolves escaped with a 21-20 triumph in Crystal Lake.
